I don't think manufacturers ever stop R&D. When 360 and PS3 came out, I doubt the companies said "ok, let's not worry about the next console for the next 5/6 years". In fact I bet they were thinking about the next console as the 360 went in to final prototyping.

Will be exciting to see a new console, graphics have not really changed much as developers still work for the 360.

Will a new xbox be more powerful than the best home pc at the moment?

Let's hope it'll be able to do AA.

That way when they port stuff to PC we might at least get AA support.

Assuming of course that people still develop stuff for PC by then...

Wonderful... make it so they can swap out GFX cards so us PC gamers don't get bogged down in consolificationville please.

Or better yet, destroy all consoles! >.<

Afaik, we'll be looking at a 2013 release date at the earliest. The next console should be SM5.0 (i.e. DX11 featureset) allowing for things like AA and full HD deferred rendering which on the current XBOX is impossible due to the small size of the framebuffer.

Looking forward to it!

What they need to do is start a game company, then after 10 years hire a hacker and level him up to level 5 with lots of training vacations. Then buy a job change manual from a door to door salesman, before changing him into a hardware engineer to work on it entirely on his own. If Game Dev Story taught me anything, that will only take an extra year!

OnLive! and Steams Big Screen will surely add to the development direction and I wonder what the future consoles will look like and behave like with these in mind. Have we seen the back of the simple consoles of the last decade and they will now be more integrated with everything else in the home including PCs?

My pursuit of the coveted Game of the Year led to a 3 day binge of Game Dev Story.

And it's good to see MS working on the next console.

Current consoles (at least the PS3 & Xbox) integrate in some form already. Both have Internet video streaming, the ability to browse another PC for music or video and both can already play physical media-based movies.

Frankly, I think the new console will probably just be a case of "bigger, better, faster" - after all, the max resolution is stuck at 1080p, so all that can really change are the numbers: faster processor, faster graphics, more detail, more AA, more storage.

As long as Microsoft see Sony as their main competitor, not Nintendo, we should be OK. I won't be interested if Microsoft try to make some kind of Wii-alike console.

sounds about right that they should start now. Bear in mind that current technology or technology availble in 1 year time will probably be at its core. So the PC should still be at least a year or two more advanced, unless the PC industry decideds to take a holiday??

Lets say for example they use something of similar power to Sandy Bridge, Intel would probably be looking at releasing their next architechture a year after the next gen consoles come out or maybe sooner, who knows?

Still I'm sure it will be interesting to find out what happens.
